Before you journey on your way,
Before light graces curtains sheer,
Before you plunge into your day,
Be still and know that I am near.
When burdens weigh, your head brought low,
When grasp is robbed of what’s held dear,
When chains restrain, temptations grow,
Be still and know that I am near
The stillness brings a precious space,
With faded questions, silenced fear,
Ushering in a sweet embrace,
Still soul, know I AM is here.
